<Joshue> Bug 10600 - Strong semantics role="presentation" for <img alt="<empty>"> is wrong or inaccurate

<Joshue> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10600

<Joshue> Hixie states this is intentional. Related to issue of role=?img? for img elements. Unsure of what to do, but should probably be expedited until resolved.

-> http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/129 Issue on ARIA Mapping

Not a TF issue, and Ian's response ok on 10600

<Joshue> Bug 10604 - Don't say 'empty' about @alt anywhere, say 'empty string' everywhere

<Joshue> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10604

<Joshue> Josh notes: Partially accepted by Hixie and checked in as a WHATWG revision. Close.

<Joshue> Bug 8753 - Undo for drag and drop

We accept Ian's response on this (was accepted), and don't need it to be for TF. Leif can "verify" it.

<Joshue> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8753

<Joshue> Seems to be more of a question, than a bug. Suggest closing.

<Joshue> I am concerned about the changes to the following bugs:



not a TF priority


not a TF priority, but some advice added to bug


is a TF priority, related to ISSUE-31, also depends on 8171 and 8716


should be a TF priority, not consensus but prevailing view is that @title is part of "completeness" for a iframe, same as @alt is for img


Take up as tf bug, investigate the various issues in bug triage sub-team first



the above two are TF priority because drag and drop, and depend on 7721


<Joshue> 8171 http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8171

<Joshue> == Martins Bugs ==

<Joshue> Bug #10605: typo in @alt may be ommitted

<Joshue> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10605

<Joshue> Resolved FIXED. Verified the change made it into the W3C spec.

<Joshue> Bug 10606 - Define what alt="<whitespace>" means for <img>

<Joshue> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10606

related to the text alternatives issue-31, so making a TF priority
